This painting is part of a series called Transcendence. Transcendence; the inner work of ascension, rising above, growing out of and transcending the circumstances one finds oneself in.

My model for this painting is one of my granddaughters, Isabella. The Title, “Espère (Hope)” speaks to the hope for a better future. Her countenance showing her innocence, peace, and inner strength. The nest resting on her, a symbol of new life, hope and the potential for transformation..
